Last week, there was a giveaway of Cloud Native Infrastructure by Justin Garrison and Kris Nova. There’s no need for a giveaway because you can now get Cloud Native Infrastructure FOR FREE! This week’s edition is delayed due to adventures traveling back from Kubecon (salute to those that stood up SIG-Airport). I have to say that Kubecon had some of the friendliest people I’ve met attending, sponsoring, and running it. The hallway track was where I spent the vast majority of my time (also on the phone doing interviews). Brace yourselves for all things Cloud Native and Kubernetes.
